Weegee Meets Kubrick

What happened when one of my favorite photos went on the set of my favorite movie? It happened (to my surprise) in early 1963 when the Capa of the New York streets, Weegee, journeyed to England to visit the set of Kubrick's Dr. Strangelove. This site publishes some of his photos, including ones from the famous "food fight" that ended the film (but was cut). See Kubrick writing "Lolita" on one of his nuclear warheads that Slim Pickens would soon ride.  (h/t Jack Shafer)
